Supplication or Curse?

A poet supplicated for a person whose one eye was bad that may Allah make your two eyes similar. If this was said in love then it means that the supplication was for both eyes to be good. In hatred the same supplication will mean that his both eyes be bad. In a similar manner we can not do exegesis of the Holy Qur'an merely by looking at the dictionary.
